Winemaker Notes

Fresh and citrusy in the nose, lemon-lime and wispyaromatic oak, a somewhat banana-esque character leads toa clean yet round mouthfeel, a long-lasting finish with abit of flintiness... 25-year-old vines, farmed organically;stainless-steel fermentation, no malolactic and short termaging in used French oak; it all adds up to a classicChardonnay in the Montrachet mold. Serve cool withpowerful cheeses; fried seafood; roasted chicken; porkroast with apples and cabbage; root vegetable gratins…

Wine & Spirits
Richard and Thekla Sanford founded Alma Rosa in 2005, after 24 years at Sanford Winery. They based their new project on 100 acres of organically farmed vineyards in the Santa Rita hills. This chardonnay is a selection from vines planted in 1983, cold fermented without malolactic. Only 30 percent of it rests in new oak. The fruit comes through in citrusy flavors of pink grapefruit, orange and a hint of salted caramel. It's clean and firm, with the warm/cool zest of the Santa Rita Hills. A beautiful young chardonnay to chill for any fresh shellfish.

Richard Sanford came to the Santa Ynez Valley 40 years ago with the desire to create wines that would rival the best of France. First to recognize the potential of the Santa Rita Hills (now an officially accredited American Viticultural Area as Sta. Rita Hills), and first to plant Pinot Noir vines there, Richard is a pioneer with a well established reputation for excellence in winemaking.

Working in partnership for more than 30 years, Thekla and Richard Sanford founded multiple, successful winegrowing enterprises. Their latest venture, Alma Rosa Winery & Vineyards, represents the culmination of a lifetime's experience – an enterprise dedicated to creating high quality wines and setting a benchmark for organic farming, sustainable agriculture methods, and environment-friendly commerce.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
